Range: At one time, Mandarin ducks lived all over eastern Asia, but are disappearing rapidly. There are likely fewer than 1,000 pairs in China but there may be as many as 5,000 pairs in Japan.
WHITE MUTE SWANS
The Mute Swan is a beautiful bird, which is the main reason there is such a large, feral population in the US. It is a big bird, with cobs (males) weighing as much as 26, and the slightly smaller pens (females) weighing around 20 pounds. In fact, Mute Swans are one of the heaviest flying birds in the world.
Range: Wood ducks are found on both coasts of the United States and across the southern portion of the country. They migrate from cooler areas, but in many parts of the south, they live year round.
Austrailian Black Swan
With the longest necks of any swan species, and generally large bodies, Black Swans are striking in appearance discounting their plumage. They are almost all black but do have white flight feathers on their wings. They have red bills that have a distinct white band around them. Their legs and feet are grayish-black.
Ringed Teal Ducks
Habitat: The Ringed Teal Duck prefers swampy, wooded areas such as tropical marshes. They usually nest in the cavities of trees and are considered perching ducks because their feet are adapted to allow them to perch in trees.
